Drama era Yes
1980 Yes by Jeremy North

As you probably know, we are planning a series of e-books covering the various stages of YES music and based around some of the Yes Music Podcast episodes.

Our first publication will cover the period from Tormato in 1978 to Talk in 1994 inclusive – a sixteen year span that saw many changes in the world’s greatest progressive rock band.

We are looking for contributions from YMP listeners in order to make this a community effort.

If you have anecdotes, images of the band or of memorabilia for inclusion in this e-book, we would love to include them.

Unfortunately, there’s a bit of information I need to give you now to make sure we all understand how we are going to run this project.
